Fall may not officially start until next week, but that didn’t stop us from breaking out some hot apple cider and decking out our apartment home for the season. Here are 6 easy ways to add fall touches to your apartment home:
Let’s start with the most obvious one. Is it truly fall without pumpkin decor? Nope. Add them to bookshelves, coffee tables, mantles, and even bedroom end tables for an effortless fall feel.
Don’t get us wrong, we love a good fall pun doormat but we couldn’t just stop there. Add a buffalo plaid rug underneath your mat to add depth and a bit of extra personality. Feel like going the extra mile on your doorway? Add some pumpkins, mums, and a wreath.
When it comes to adding fall touches to your living spaces, one of the easiest ways is to switch out some of your year-round throw pillows for fall-inspired ones. Alternate between cozy textiles, such as thick knits and furs, and pillows with seasonal graphics (like the pumpkin pictured above).
Fall Themed Mugs
Whether you’re drinking hot apple cider or a pumpkin spice latte, it would be just plain wrong to drink it out of any ole mug. Opt for a fall themed mug, like the “hey there pumpkin” mug we found on Etsy for only $12!
Fall Scented Candles
Now that your space looks like fall, let’s also make it smell like fall. Some of our favorite scents for the autumn season are: cinnamon pumpkin, mahogany teakwood, and pumpkin apple. Extra points if you find a pumpkin scented candle inside a pumpkin shaped jar.
These days, a letterboard is basically an essential piece of decor. There’s an endless amount of funny quotes to choose from for fall so we wouldn’t blame you if you change it weekly. Some of our other favorites are: “autumn, a time when pie is a food group and living in sweatpants is acceptable;” “When someone says it’s too soon for pumpkin spice and you realize you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life;” and “Thanksgiving: not a good day to be my pants.”
